Elephant9


Elephant9 is Ståle Storløkken (keyb), Nikolai Hængsle Eilertsen (b,g) and Torstein Lofthus (dr). The organ trio just released "Dodovoodoo" on Rune Grammofon. It swings and grooves, and has a taste of Miles, Weather Report (two Zawinul tunes) and prog. Tough stuff! At first I got a bit irritated over the quiet, floating parts, but it will be better, I just know it. Let's just float. Back to the 70s everybody!
And Kim Hiorthøy, he must have seen the light. This must be the wildest Rune-cover so far in history.

I think a lot of it sounds exactly like a tribute to the first Tony Williams Lifetime. But being the kind of person who doesn't criticize bands/musicians for sounding like someone else, I really like it.
